Through the Screen Cultures programme of the University of Oslo you will study how screens – and our interaction with them – affect our experience and understanding of the world.


All kinds of screens

We are not only interested in our ubiquitous smartphone screens, but all kinds of screens, including the cinema, television, and computer screens, and the genres that have developed with them, such as films, series, games and social media. We live screen lives in a screen world. The aim of the Screen Cultures programme of the University of Oslo is to understand what our everyday interaction with screens implies for ourselves, the cultures we take part in, and the societies that house these cultures.

Become screen literate

As a Screen Cultures Master´s student, you will become screen literate. That means you will develop as a scholar and critic of our screen lives, exploring the psychological, cultural, social, political, technological and economic consequences of living with, in, and through screens. Through in-depth and interdisciplinary studies, we want to challenge and ultimately change the way we view screens – encouraging you, our students, to participate in this endeavour.

Interdisciplinary studies

Screen Cultures is an innovative, interdisciplinary Master of Arts programme that combines insights from several academic fields from the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences, such as cultural studies, media and communication studies, art history, anthropology, politics and psychology. We offer our students systematic ways of analysing, interpreting and reflecting upon cultures of ‘screenification’.
